The restaurant was recommended as best non-veg place inside the fort and the food was very good. Unfortunately the tables were so dirty that we asked for water and cloth to scrub them before we sat down. It did make you wonder a little bit about the hygiene of the kitchen, but in the end the food were very tasty.

We were staying at this hotel during our time in Jaisalmer so ate at this restaurant several times. The rooftop view is outstanding and it is a great place to chill out and chat to other travellers. This was one of the better places to eat within the fort. The daal was tasty and I would recommend the vege burgers.... More

You can sit for hours drinking beer, gazing out at the rooftops of Jaisalmer, curling up on the cushioned ramparts with a book ... The food isn't great, but you can relax and enjoy the view, the ambience and the service.

We visited this restaurant a night prior to Holi but our expectations of this restaurant were too high to accomplish. We were offered a chair and table after a wait of about 5 minutes. On the dark terrace, the restaurant had run out of candles and candle stand so we were asked to manage on emergency tube light which was... More

We were recommended this restaurant by another traveller earlier in our trip & are grateful that we followed up on their tip. Service wasn't speedy but the food was definitely worth the wait. We had both Indian food & European amongst our party & the consensus was that it was all good. The views & ambience was excellent, staff friendly... More

We stumbled at this place while looking for a rooftop restaurant for lunch at the Jaisalmer fort and loved the food and service so much, that we came back the next day. Great view and very chill. Our server, Ilias was very sweet.

Having stayed at Surja hotel, I ate frequently at the Lake view restaurant. The rooftop restaurant is an enchanting place to relax under the sun, soak in the cityscapes and savor some good food which will be prepared fresh upon your order...

Nice location, but i made the huge mistake of 'treating' myself to chicken after a vegetarian week. Claws, bones, maybe a beak? Unidentifiable stuff, definitely NOT chicken. The veggie sides were ok, not the best, not the worst. We didn't have to pay for the mystery meat though after complaining which was a nice surprise.
